Due to a positive case Covid case at the training centre, as per our risk assessment from Thursday 15th July we will be closed for 10 days. All learners who have been in close contact with the positive case have been contacted and informed that they need to self-isolate. All learners will continue with remote learning on their normal day of attendance. No staff will be available at the training centre, and no learners are to attend.
Please note that we will be closed to all learners Monday 26th July - Friday 30th July for a deep clean and sanitisation of the training centre. To enable us to do this, the centre must be empty of staff and learning. On-the-job training should continue with normal practice of employers and mentors supporting the apprentice in the workplace. Some Trainers will conduct workplace observations, assessments and tripartite reviews during this week.
All learners will return after the above on their normal attendance day w/c Monday 2nd August.
If you have any questions, please contact the Business Support Team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
